Everyone needs the perfect wear-with-anything sweater in their wardrobe, right? The Classic is a variation on our Paloma design which incorporates additional short rows to raise the back neck, omits the ribbing down the outside of the sleeves, and features a slightly longer body and split hem. Like Paloma, this is a straightforward raglan-style sweater with a boxy silhouette. Whether you opt for classic black or something more punchy, the modern yet timeless shape of this sweater will have you reaching for it year after year.
